Greetings in Christ!
I wanted to take a moment to send you this letter of invitation to Revival Services with Evangelist (FIRST NAME, LAST NAME), which will be held here at FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH on OCTOBER 20-23.
Rev. _____________ will be ministering on Sunday morning, and will continue the services each night beginning at 7:00 PM.
It’s somewhat amazing to me that we often don’t hear the term “Revival Services” used as much today as just a few years ago, yet if there is ever a day the church is in need of Revival, it is today!
Isaiah reminds us that God’s presence is not only in the “high and holy place”, but it is also with “him who is contrite and lowly in spirit” as we read in Isaiah 57:15 (NIV) 15 For this is what the high and lofty One says– he who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite.
Even the Dictionary gives us a great definition of Revival: “to activate, set in motion, or take up again”. This world needs to see a “revived church” which has been activated, set in motion, and taking up the armor of God again.
We, in our nation have become so comfortable in our ways that we have often failed to recognize God as the source of our blessings. We are in danger of forgetting to not only “be” thankful, but to “live” with a thankful spirit. In living this way, our thoughts and deeds are changed to reflect the life of Christ. We then can have the passion He has for seeing souls saved.
How can we have Revival?
With revival comes repentance. Yes, that word! How can we ever think we can have revival without repentance and Godly sorrow for sin? Repentance is not a negative word! Listen to this tremendous passage of scripture shared by Peter on the Day of Pentecost. Here’s what will happen when true repentance takes place: Acts 3:19 (NIV) 19 “Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord…”
Times of refreshing will come! That’s a promise of God so please take this invitation to Revival service seriously!
I want to encourage you to dedicate this time as priority for you and your family, and join your church family for these services.
